    My 6th Coin from the 1600s...and the Oldest of the Bunch!!!!

    I went for a quick hunt in my "stand-by" beside my house...1st target was a 1st for me. It's a French Liard. The other side is smooth so I can't give a date but best guess would be mid 1600s. I may be able to pull a date with a little cleaning.

    I guess that's being on the board!

    1655, 56, 57, or 58.

    Nice little coin there! be nice to see on a date on it...
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

    I would hit that pasture with a passion, Patrick. It is close to your home and produces Colonial relics. You are living the dream, my friend. Now, if you could only get Iron Patch away from his coffee pot, maybe he would find something.

    Keep the passion high!

    Even on a decent liard the date can be tough to see it's so small, so probably very little chance for that one.

    Oh yeah...i've hit this field hard and it's always given me something postable. It's funny because I think of it as my "beat site" but it always produces...

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I like IP's call; similar to this one:

    Don.....
    Adding: I believe the "E" is the mint mark for Tours, France.

    Good job, cool coin.
    I got my oldest today too, can't read the date either, but it's still the oldest. Always nice to beat records.
